Description Obviously I absorbed a lot of science-fiction television and Chuck Jones cartoons as a kid this apparently is the effect of all that. Beyond my love for these themes the work is also a self-portrait as I reconnect with the stuff that first inspired me to try illustration, art and design. This series doesn't feature much dialogue I'm not a fan of being overly literal and direct I want this to feel somewhat organic and elastic so viewers can perceive different things from their own perspectives and experiences. But overall the work reflects action, drama, conflict, sexiness, and heroic themes.
Bill O'Neil, Milwaukee Member Since October 2006 Artist Statement My artwork inspirations include a few odd conspirators like the chaotic influences of cryptography, prime numbers, and decay. I'm also influenced by Eames-era artifacts, retro-modern abstract art, architecture, and advertising. And all these inspirations manifest themselves in the different pieces I produce.
I really never approach my art very logically. It’s all fairly impulsive and obsessive. I just try to understand what it means when it’s complete. I like to think of my style as a super-nautural fusion of urban graffiti, mid-century modern abstracts, advertising design, and some kind of otherworldly information maps.
